Cramer's Take on Headline Stocks

Updated with stock prices.

Oil was in the red on Monday, sending stocks and the three major indices lower as well. Bank of America ( BAC) was recently losing 65 cents, or 5.1%, to $11.99; Apple ( AAPL) was down $1.98, or 1.4%, at $138.04; and General Electric ( GE) was slipping 4 cents, or 0.3%, to $11.42.

General Motors ( GMGMQ) could be on its way out of bankruptcy after a federal ruling that will allow the automaker to sell assets, including the Chevrolet and Cadillac brands, to a new company, in part owned by the U.S. government.

In upgrade-downgrade news, Keybank upgraded Oshkosh ( OSK) to buy with $30 price target, Deutsche Bank upgraded Symantec ( SYMC) to buy and raised its price target on the stock to $19, Goldman upgraded Nordstrom ( JWN) to neutral, and Stifel Nicolaus upgraded American Express ( AXP) to hold.

On Monday afternoon, Oshkosh was gaining $1.48, or 7.4%, to $21.41; Symantec was down 15 cents, or 1%, at $15.55; Nordstrom was up 46 cents, or 2.5%, at $19.09; and American Express was gaining $1.16, or 5.2%, at $23.43.
